A vet by profession, Vestin Verghese has written stories and poems for magazines like Magic Pot. He has won the national award for scientific communication in 2015, for his contribution in Tell Me Why, a children’s magazine. He was also the columnist for City Journal.
The Shadow of the Steam Engine published by Mango books is his debut novel. Released in November 2018, the book revolves around the common thread of good versus evil weaved into a tale filled with adventures. The story about the kids is set in a forest adjacent to a sea. With mouthwatering references to food, and the path they choose for their mission, interspersed with elements of fantasy is by no doubt a promising read for the kids.
The book is available for sale across all DC Books retail outlets and their online store.
